Orbán: Any further restrictions must be 'fair' to inoculated

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said he would argue against introducing restrictions during the fourth wave of the pandemic "until the last minute possible", although noting that such a decision would be taken by pandemic experts.
In an interview on Kossuth Rádió, he argued that no restrictions should be introduced that "make anybody feel they're being treated unfairly".
"It wouldn't be right, when two-thirds of the country is inoculated, 6 million people, to restrict them because a minority in the country doesn't want to get inoculated."
"That's why I'm no believer in restrictions because they're unfair to those who have done all they can to live without those restrictions," he said.
"Those who have made every effort cannot be made the losers," he added.
"If there are any kind of restrictions, I will propose a return to using immunity certificates which differentiate between those who took the responsibility of getting inoculated and those who didn't take that responsibility," Orbán said.
